Following her successful prison break at the end of Joshu Sasori Dai 41 Zakkyobou, Scorpion (Meiko Kaji) begins this third episode in the series hiding in a brothel. Her prostitute friend tries to keep her identity secret, but the brothel's madam discovers that Scorpion is the ex-girlfriend of the vice officer who killed her lover. Torture follows, as the madam's lover was a member of the Yakuza, and his thuggish cohorts frame Scorpion and get her re-arrested. This was the final film in the series for director Shunya Ito, but Kaji returned one more time in Joshu Sasori 701-go Urami Bushi (1973).
